Lanark Street, Balclutha
Our first stop here was entirely by accident, needing somewhere to pass some time before we could drive the last half hour to our accommodation in the Catlins. And it was a fantastic accident. The playground is generously sized, with a good range of play equipment. It is easy access for cars, with good parking, and has multiple mature trees for summer shade. In Autumn, I can imagine it would be a haven for leaf throwing, as the trees are all deciduous. It’s only downfall is that toilets are quite a way off, either in the showgrounds, or at the i-site. For older kids, its not far, but it was a long way on little legs.
As an added bonus, New World is two minutes walk, so if you need the makings of a picnic, you can top up there!
